About Solihull

Solihull probably came into being about a thousand years ago as a clearing in the forest to which people would come to trade. The Doomsday Survey of 1086 would suggest that it was one of the most sparsely populated areas in the country. The first known reference to Solihull occurs in a tax list dated around 1180.

The earlier Anglo-Saxon settlement of Ulverlei lay about two miles north west, in the area of present day Olton. "It is most likely that Solihull was founded, during the lordship of the last of the de Limesis , as a market centre , a 'planted borough'. The site chosen was at the junction of important medieval roads on top of the hill from which it derived its name 'soly hill' meaning 'miry hill'. It may be that there was already a holy well. The origins of St Alphege Church date from this time." By 1200 Solihull was fully established and Ulverlei was being referred to as Olton. It began to develop at the beginning of the 13th century with market rights granted in 1242. In 1417 Henry V claimed the manor as his own.
